What's The Weirdest Name You've Heard A Patient Name Her Baby? - page 23

Hi, I was wondering about some of those weird names that you've probably encountered in L&D and PP. I remember when I had my maternity rotation a couple of weeks ago, one of the nurses said she... Read More

    I remember some years ago that David Bowie named his son Zowie Bowie. He later changed it to Duncan.

    He's cute, too. Here's a pic:



    He sort of reminds me of a young Kiefer Sutherland. You can definitely see David's cheekbones there!

    I love David Bowie.

    My uncle, who is a pharmacist, also has kept a notebook of strange baby names. Among his are... Placenta AND Uterus, and he's had those MORE THAN ONCE!

    My girlfriend's husband wanted to name their third child Elec Tricity (as in the power source). Thank goodness she convinced him to shorten is just to Trisitea (which is still pretty strange if you ask me!)

    Okay, here's one. VaGina. I'm not kidding. Mom saw the word "vagina" and thought that was just a beautiful name, pronounced it "va - Jeena". I wasn't in L&D when she did it, but all I could think was , why didn't someone explain it to her??? It's amazing, but there are so many women in socioeconomically depressed areas who really just do not know very much. At least the daughter can later shorten it to just Gina if she so chooses.

    VaGina.... oh dear. Poor girl...

    I heard of another one, once again from an illiterate woman who thought that
    SyPhyllis was a nice sounding name.

    poor kids.

    My parents named me an unusual name, and I would MUCH rather been named Jane or Michelle. Oh well.

    I helped care for preemie twins the other night; Ginger and Cinnamon (we thought the same thing a previous poster did about how soon can they start their porno career). Not that those names are all that odd really, just odd together.

    Some hispanic names seem odd to some of us though they are very average within their culture. We've had an Alfredo (as in sauce) and a Margarita. Difference being that as I said these are absolutely normal average names in hispanic cultures.

    LOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!! You know what? There are 2 boys named that (I swear) at a grade school near a clinic I used to work at. My sister's at the time boyfriend was student teaching there, and he was giving us the low down on the names. Those were 2. Sad isn't it?

    First time to talk on here. We had some funny names in our nursery too.
    How about Pretty Sugar Sweet, Rocky Road, and Placenta?
